Anyone ever removed that wobble washe behind the bolts on the brake rotors? Removing that washer creates a full floater. Just curious if anyones found a down side to doing this?
understood, but Multis don't have buttons in the traditional sense cause the rotor bolts directly to the wheel...no carrier. Those kits don't apply.Typically the "buttons" that hold the rotor to the carrier where those wobble (wave) washers are sandwiched are riveted. You can buy kits that replace the rivets with buttons that use c-clips making them full floaters from the semi-floaters that came with the bike. STM and others make full floating rotor button kit
It's been mentioned here but not to the extent on multistrada.net. I had it on my `04, it was minor but annoying. It was the reason I was looking for full floaters, by the time they came out I decided to the sell it. I had the banjo bolt changed, all it did was move it to lower speed.As a side note, I got the idea to remove them trying to fix a pretty annoying brake shudder on the front. I'd never heard of this arond here. Some research ofer on multistrada.net revealed this is a pretty common problem on the bike. My efforts failed to cure my shudder and research seems to indicate new aftermarket rotors are the best, permanent solution. Anyone else facing this?
